1150GS gathering

We here in Cape Town organised an 1150GS gathering in which we managed to get 26 1150's lined up for a photo at a destination that these awesome machines were designed to be frequenting

See here for more info Tankwa Karoo get-together

Here is a picture one of the guys took.

Was missing just the one spark plug cover which is on order along with replacement grips. Not sure yet if I'll remove the charcoal canister. Still reading about these things. I think I read that can help keep the tank from rusting out. Nice to have a new bike, but a whole new set of farkles, mods and research needed. In the meantime, I'll be rinding the fugger.

What happened to the " Lets see your 1150GS/GSA " thread

I think I'm looking in the right place but I can't find that post.

"Alle, alle auch sind frei" is what the SS yelled as they roamed the streets of Warsaw, I hear.

So, I am cleaning the garage up a bit, raining and all needed something to do, and I came across the two "cup" deals for the lower leading edge of the Fuel Tank. These are the TT units..

Now, I doubt I would have paid for them especially after seeing what they cost, but figured since I had 'em, and I already scratched the tank a bit in that area (moving crap around the garage like my daughter's bikes) I'd put 'em on.

I know I read somewhere that someone suggested double sided auto tape. My worry is crap like sand or dirt getting behind them and sitting there to scratch/rust.

So, anyone who has 'em mounted and isn't afraid to publish a pic, describing how they did it and with what, I'd appreciate it.

OR, if someone thinks I should just skip 'em, voice that to.

Thanks. BUMP for a great thread!

Ragin Rabbi, this is a picture thread not a tech thread. If you got a question about tank guards why not post it in a thread about tank guards? Why post it here? Try THIS ONE instead.

Well, if nothing else I knew that one of the thread police would point me in the right direction.
